Mermaid's 75 At Last! (56K warning)
At last after 2 weeks of setup, here is my tank.
On the right is the wonderful stump I found, with a rock on top of it because it still wants to float even though it has slate attached to the bottom.
On the left and middle section is the grape vine which is staying down, Yeah! and two other pieces of driftwood. The rock in the middle is temporary also holding down a piece of driftwood.
Question: Can I put lead in my tank? Thinking of adding large pieces to the driftwood on to the edges of the slate they are attached to, to get rid of the big rock, not part of my design.
On the right side shows the PH I will be using to aerate the water at night after I get a CO2 unit. On the left side shows the spray bar I made, hoping that one of these days the plants will grow big enough to hide it.
Fish: 1 otto, 6 long finned zebra danios, 3 guppies, 1 green cory. Can I add more or wait until my plants are thicker?
All the parameters are great except I would like to increase my alkalinity without raising the PH anymore. On the other hand would like to keep the water on the soft side. I used RO water partially. Want to make sure I have enough buffers to make my tank stable in PH.
Thought of getting some glass shrimp for additional clean up crew. And also another otto. He is doing great but would like a companion I think.
75 gal planted is now a reality!
